MacBook Pro :: Headset Jack Does Not Function At All

Jun 1, 2012

I have a MBP 13" running os x lion 10.7.4. The headset jack does not function at all. I can hear crackling in the headphones but not actual sound. I have attempted the the PRAM reset but I guess my timing is off because I keep running into the boot menu. I have a pair of Dre. Pro's that I am using and work fine on everything else I own.

OS X :: MacBook Does Not Recognize USB Headset Mic Unless Plugged Into Hub

Feb 25, 2010

Here's my puzzler of the moment: I have a Creative USB headset (the Fatal1ty gaming headset for Mac, which I bought at an Apple store). It's been working fine via USB (with the notable exception that it stops working easily if even slightly jostled).

In the last few days, however, it stopped working when plugged directly into the Mac. The audio out still works, and it shows up as an audio input device, but when selected it does not detect any incoming audio.

I assumed it was a headset problem until I tested it plugged into a USB hub - plugged into the hub, it works fine.

MacBook Pro :: Stereo Headset Mic Not Working

Mar 4, 2010

So I bought this Logitech ClearChat Stereo headset at Walmart today. It doesn't work. The headphone portion does, but the mic doesn't. Yes, the switch is switched to "on". Now it does say on the side of the packaging that it will not work on Apple hardware, but I decided to give them a try anyway, finding out that it doesn't work.

It's just 2 standard 3.5mm plugs (one for the mic, and one for the headphone). I don't see why it wouldn't work. I have a cable that has the same 3.5mm plugs on both ends and I can plug one end into my iPhone and one into my MBP's line-in, start playing music and the audio will work. I guess it really meant what was on the side of the box, but I'd like to get this working. I've read a few reviews for this on Newegg of people getting it to work on their MacBook's.

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Headset Not Connecting?

May 26, 2012

I bought my first MacBook Pro a couple of days ago. I am trying to learn everything, but the bluethooth is not working. I have a rocketfish bluethooth headset and when I pair the MacBook shows it's "Not Connected" but the headset is flashing like it has been paired. When I try to play audio to it, the audio comes from the computer.

MacBook :: How To Use The Corded IPhone Headset With VOIP

Feb 19, 2008

What I find is that I start to naturally use the same headset when I'm using my MBP - just because it's often round my neck anyway.

Wouldn't it be great if I could use the MIC from the headset with the MBP as well? Then I could use it properly for iChat/Skype calls.

I'm wondering if it should be possible for someone to manufacture an adaptor that fits the special 4-contact plug on the headset, and separates off the mic part so that it creates 2 normal mini jack plugs, that could be plugged into the MBP headphone & mic sockets. Would be great. Anyone heard of such a thing?

Yesterday I bought the steel series 7H gaming headset (no USB external soundcard included) to game in hardcore pro Korean mode on my mac once in a while, but when I try to connect it to windows 7 (under bootcamp), I get no input from the microphone!

MacBook Pro :: Connect External Mic (gaming Headset) To It?

Jun 28, 2012

I just made the mistake of buying a gaming headset that has the two audio jacks, input and output. Realizing that Macs dont have the right audio input port now. Before I take them back, is there any way I could get them to work? The sound is fine, but the mic doesn't work obviously. But I do have a pair of wireless Turle Beaches that I use for my Xbox 360, is there anyway I could take some of the connections from that to get this headset to work? Or do I just need to take it back and get a USB headset.

MacBook :: Weird USB Headset And Skype Volume Options For System

Feb 23, 2009

I was on a SkypeIn call and everything was working perfectly. Half way through my call, another SkypeIn call came through that I rejected. The second I pressed the reject button, the headset volume decreased by half. When the call finished I played around with the volume settings (from the headset itself, from the keyboard and from within system preferences) to no avail. I removed the headset and plugged it back in. No change. I restarted - no change I shutdown - let things sit for a few minutes and then started up again - no change Here is where it starts to get a little weird. When I play iTunes or some such similar application the volume plays at a normal level but as soon as I use Skype or some other random applications (voice mainly I think) the volume is very low again.

Is there any way to use the built in speakers in a mac while the headset is plugged in?

I live in a collective, so I can not use the speakers 50% of the time. When I plug in the Headset, the speakers go off.

And I have not found a way to activate the speakers without plugging out the headset.

Windows On Mac :: Parallels - USB Headset Mic Does Not Work?

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running the latest version of Parallels 5.0 and Windows 7. When I plug the headset in it asks me whether I want to plug it into Mac OS or Virtual Machine. I've tried both but for some reason it doesn't seem to work! Only the headphones will work, yet the mic won't - consequently it will automatically use the built-in mic of my MBP. However, my headset works just fine in VMWare. How could I make the headset's mic work in Parallels too?

OS X :: Hardware Cracks Concerning USB Adapter For A Headset?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm pretty new to Macs, I've tried googeling and searching this forum. I didn't find anything sounding like my problem, so I hope somebody can help me with this.

I use Teamspeak and Skype on a regular basis. I already knew that you require a USB adapter to use your normal headset, so I bought one by Creative (actually, a USB soundcard) when my new iMac arrived.

At first, everything seemed to work fine. I was talking to a few guys in Teamspeak when they told me I sound like Darth Vader all of a sudden. I doublechecked that by switching channels and doing the Teamspeak self voice test. It sounded really choppy, my friends were right.

I disconnected the USB soundcard, replugged it a few times. Eventually, it worked again. Well, it didn't prove to be for ever, since the problem came back - I can't say there's any special situation and I couldn't reproduce it. It was just random.

Ok, my second guess was that I would require different hardware, since Creative didn't provide any drivers for MacOS. I went back to the shop and bought a simple adapter by Speedlink, cheap stuff, I know. I just figured "less complicated hardware equals less problems". This Speedlink adapater just transforms the signal for USB.

MacOS found it straight away, and I started using my headset again. Well, cut a long story short, the same thing happened today, at random. My voice suddenly becomes chopppy and sounds something like Vader. I switch to internal Mic, use it for a few minutes, switch back (Sound Source is great), the mic works for a while, and then it all starts over again.

So, any of you guys have an idea what the problem is?

(before you ask, it's a Sennheiser headset, upper middle class, and has never failed me before)

OS X Technologies :: Enable APT-X For Bluetooth Headset?

Mar 23, 2012

MacBook Pro late 2009

10.7 (OS X Lion) 

Today I received my brand new Sennheiser PX 210 BT. This headset supports APT-X for significant better audio quality. 

Alt+click the bluetooth icon in the menubar tells me the following info:

Bluetooth Version: 4.0.3.f12 Active codec: SBC (this should be APT-X) 

How can I change/fix this so I can use APT-X as the bluetooth codec?

Hardware :: Good Gaming And All Round Headset?

Jan 7, 2011

I'm looking for a good headset that will serve me well for music, gaming, and VoIP, and I'm hoping y'all will have some good advice for me. I've been through two headsets so far without luck and done a fair bit of research already. I've come up with the following requirements. We'll see what you can come up with. Must be USB. I don't want to mess around with adapters and crap.Must have an around-the-ear (circumaural) design. I have a big head, sensitive ears, and I wear glasses. Over the years I've learned to just stay away from any design that touches my ears at all.
